The first batch of the season! Just enough for a skillet full for supper!I seriously thought it was just a bit early for these to be popping, but nevertheless off to the woods I went just hoping for a small batch or a few. After finding a few false morels , that are non edible, I knew time was close. The "Big Red" false morels generally appear a few days to a week before the true delicious edible morels appear. Less than ten yards from the nice "Big Red" my woods companion Adam found, I spied the seasons first batch.
My friends at Prairie State Outdoors were excited as I was by this early find!
